Electric Transmission Projects
Duke Energy is committed to providing safe, reliable power to our customers – and this sometimes requires that we build and/or upgrade the electric facilities. In addition, we have an obligation to ensure that our transmission system complies with federally mandated criteria. This includes the maintenance of transmission right of ways, the strip of land Duke Energy purchases from property owners to install the lines and equipment necessary to deliver electricity.
Duke Energy owns and operates an extensive network of approximately 32,300 miles of high-voltage power lines, called electric transmission lines. These power lines help ensure a continuous, reliable flow of electricity from generating stations to our customers and neighboring utilities. Duke Energy has electric transmission projects under way to help ensure customers have the power they need.
